Former NFL star Darren Sharper, 40, will likely spend 15 to 20 years in prison under a revised plea deal unveiled Tuesday.

The ex-Saints player appeared in a New Orleans court to hear the news. The new plea agreement is substantially higher than the 9 years Sharper initially faced. U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo rejected the nine-year federal prison term that came with Sharper’s initial global plea agreement in four states.

“Mr. Sharper has agreed to cooperate,” McMahon said. “We may bring to the attention of the court his cooperation, if we deem that to be substantial. We are not bound to make such a notice to the court. That’s going to be within our discretion. No promises have been made, but the possibility is there.”

Under the new deal, Sharper will more closely conform with federal sentencing guidelines that recommend 188 to 235 months for the drug conspiracy and distribution violations to which he admitted guilt.
